Calendar of Events



ACN runs a comprehensive event calendar throughout the year specifically dedicated to advancing nurse leadership and the health profession. These events include:


Dec 14

Mental health services increasingly focus on ‘risk management’ to prevent harm to service users, communities, and professional or organisational reputations. This puts services in the invidious position of meeting unsustainable community expectations that force them down a rabbit hole of meds, beds and compulsory treatment, despite Australia’s recovery policy. A recovery-based service offers many more options and people work together to embrace opportunities and share positive risk taking.
